Friday 24 May 2019 | 10:14 CET | News
Spain's communications and competition regulator CNMC has launched proceedings leading to possible fines against 7 companies for misuse of numbers beginning with 902. Numbers that use the 902 prefix must be for information and customer service purposes only and not to make money.
